|Subject:||[Bug-gnubg] GNU playing well with other applications in Windows|
|Date:||Sun, 13 Oct 2002 09:00:10 -0500|
I just started a rollout in GNU and noticed that it sucks up practically all system resources. A suggestion would be for you to add code (Windows sleep API call perhaps?) so that other applications can continue to run even if GNUBG is performing a rollout.
I'm a VB programmer for Windows, and there is a call in VB called DoEvents() which basically is a command to go look to Windows and perform any waiting tasks. I do not know what the equivalent is in C or C++.
The Sleep API is called with a long int value and is defined as:
Declare Sub Sleep Lib "kernel32" (ByVal dwMilliseconds As Long)
... in VB anyway, not sure how you link API calls in C.
Thanks for your efforts. Very nice looking product!
My system specs:
Windows XP Professional SP1
AMD Thunderbird 12000MhZ
512 MB DDRAM
2 40GB HD
-> Was trying to read e-mail when doing a rollout when this situation occurred.
